may happen next. now, from cairo. >> reporter: demonstrations continue against the egyptian president, mohamed morsy, not the big numbers we saw on friday. but certainly, still a lot of people out here, about 30 tents here, this is an indication that many of these protesters want to be here for a while. it is not clear how long they will stay here. but when you talk to them they seem determined to speak out against mr. morsy's controversial decrees. he is saying that nobody can revise what i say. he is actually throwing the whole system out, totally. >> reporter: meanwhile, big developments in meeting rooms and news conferences, where factions opposed mr. morsy's moves to put pressure on the system. it seemed to weaken the judiciary, by calling for a nationwide judge's strike. also the supreme judicial committee, discussed the attack on the judiciary. they called for a one-million protest and sit-in for tuesday. what does mr. morsy's group do? they call for a one-million man protest, as well on tuesday. some critical days ahead. cairo. >>> elsewhere in the region, the signs the truce
into the central square in cairo to call for an end to the new egyptian leader's regime. it was an enormous show of strength from the opposition that spent days blasting egypt he is new president, morsi. he upset just about everybody last week when he decided to give himself broad new powers that say his decisions don't need approval from any court. essentially he's above the law. really no different than a dictator. protests showed their across the country, some of them violent. street fighting this between demonstrators and police. president morsi tried to calm the criticism by promising to reserve his new powers for only the most important decisions. but that didn't appease the protesters. remember, just last week, the united states was publicly praising president morsi when he helped end the conflict between israel and gaza. the white house says president obama has not spoken to his egyptian counterpart since then and today the press secretary jay carney said basically the egyptians need to work this out themselves. there is no evidence that will happen any time soon. right now this enormous

continued at this hour in cairo in meetings reportedly taking place involving the prime minister of egypt, the prime minister of turkey as well as the emir trying to come up with a cease-fire there are indications the talks are continuing but here on the ground they plan to implement some kind of ground incursion into gaza if necessary. the military has been offered to draft as many as 57,000 reservists. you can see roads are closed off and see and hear an increased amount of military activity. if there is not a diplomatic solution soon it looks like the violence is going to be ratcheted up. >> heather: david lee miller. thank you. >> gregg: let's take a look. so far 57 rockets have landed inside israel. that doesn't include the 25 rockets that have been intercepted by israel's iron dome. since the started the pillar of defense over 400 rockets and miles have hit hundreds more have been intercepted. how exactly does the iron dome missile defense work? they calculate each rocket's trajectory and only intercepted those that will hate target. this is iron dome to a vast array of sensors to d
of regional stability and peace. >> we start with nbc's jim macedo in cairo. who what are the details? >> reporter: well, steve, most importantly, starting at 2:00 p.m. as you mentioned israel stops all military action in israel and hamas stops launching rockets on israel and carrying out border attacks on israeli troops but this is the key thing. there is no signed formal agreement here. instead, israel and hamas reached an understanding, a kind of exchange of quiet for quiet. the first phase of a broader agreement. that should be followed by more intense negotiations, those will be anchored and guaranteed we understand by egypt and the united states. to try to resolve the key demands on both sides. of course, for hamas, the lifting of that 6-year-old blockade of gaza. for israel, it's stopping all the weapons smuggling. but neither will happen immediately. at least, however, they have agreed in principle to these demands and the need to work them out. you had a clip of secretary clinton. she went on to call the cease-fire deal a step in the right direction. she said she looks forwar
has more from cairo. >> yeg, some dramatic developments here in cairo. egypt's president trying to expand his own powers dramatically, saying that any of his presidential decrees issued since he took office six months ago cannot be overturned by anybody, including the courts. and that those previous officials who could be implicated in murdering demonstrators during the revolution a year ago would be retried. as one morsey opponent put it, he is basically putting himself above the having no one to check his powers. we have seen street protests. those protests could grow dramatically with these new announcements by the egyptian president. it comes on the heels of a real diplomatic success in the world spotlight here. president morsey helping to negotiate a cease-fire between israel and hamas. really, making the unusual step of receiving praise from all sides from u.s. officials from hamas, even from some israeli officials for his pragmatism but certainly that imagine that tism in its own rule here could be put to the test almost immediately. with new decrees expanding his power,
in israel and then in the west bank meeting with the palestinian authority, then in cairo could nudge along the process to see if they could get to a point of some sort of negotiated ceasefire. as far as the united states is concerned, the spokesperson says what that begins with is hamas stopping the rocket fire into israel and a longer negotiated settlement they hope can be agreed upon. >> chuck todd in cambodia. thank you. as he just mentioned, secretary of state hillary clinton is heading directly from cambodia to israel to try to work out that diplomatic situation to the violent escalations of tensions in gaza. nbc's martin fletcher is live in tel aviv for the latest situation there. good morning to you, martin. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. the leaders here, israeli and palestinian certainly need all the help they can get to come down from the high trees in which they find themselves. the israelis were attacked this morning, 30 palestinian rockets landed near one town south. one person was injured. no serious damage was done. at the same time israel is continuing to pound palestinia
cairo with steve hariggan, standing by live. >> reporter: the numbers are building of protesters here in tahrir square, the number of tents growing as the protesters say they are here to stay and digging in. on the street below me, over the past few minutes, we have seen young protesters, lighting bottles on fire and running. the skirmishes have wounded more than 3 people. we have seen the military begin to move large concrete block, blocking off certain narrow alleyways and protecting government buildings. explosions can be heard behind me. right now, one key thing to watch is where the protests go next. we are expecting major demonstrations on both sides on tth. those who support president morsi and think he is doing what needs to be done. and those who think he is making a power grab, trying to become a dictator. both groups will try to get out their constituents on tuesday. it will be a real test of power. the final thing to watch, the country's judges, many are saying they are going on strike. it could shut down the judicial system across the country this week. >> shannon: steve,
. >> unbelievable. more than 100,000 people flooded into downtown cairo. this time they are protesting the current president martha maccallum and his power grab. they are disillusioned with what he has brought to their country. then you have this happening. police firing teargas. gypt's highest courts refusing to work in protest of morsi's actions. steve harrigan is streaming live from cairo. the protests looked like the unrest we saw in that same square back in 2009 and the arab spring and the overthrow of mubarak. how dangerous is it? is it more dangerous now? >> this certainly allows similarities between what we saw last night and those demonstrations that overthrew mubarak. hundreds of thousands of people are energized. many of them want this president out. but a couple of important differences. the current president martha maccallum was elected by 52% of the vote just five months ap a - the current president mohamed morsi haas elected by 52% of the vote. martha: it was a close election and the other choice may have been a more democratic choice. people were searching for new leadership and th

in what is now early morning live in cairo, egypt. the white house says president obama called israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and egyptian president mohammed morsi today. the president thanked them for working out a cease-fire deal but also said it's important to keep working on a more durable solution. a live update from the white house coming up on "the fox report." well, tonight, witnesses say the only bullets flying in gaza are shots of celebration. crowds in cars froogd the streets of gaza city after the announcement. earlier today before the deal was done, there was new violence on both sides of the border. team fox coverage continues. david lee miller live in southern israel. david lee, it sounds like the cease-fire is holding at least for now. that's right. trace. it's a little more than five hours since the cease-fire got underway. it is quiet along the border except for the occasional southbound overhead of israeli drones. the scene there very different than hours ago when the cease-fire was announced. there was a barrage of rockets fired into israel. when it took
harrigan is streaming live from cairo with the latest. where do the protests go from here? >> rick, the numbers are down today from what we saw on friday and we're likely to see more large scale protest demonstrations in the coming days, after sunday morning prayers and again on tuesday. what we're likely to see then are really competing margins, those who support the president, who feel like his moves are necessary, to break the log jam and to move the country forward and those who think that the president is trying to achieve a dictatorship. those who are trying to block him. so we're going to see more large scale protests and the other things to watch resignation is, three presidential aides have recently resigned in the past two hours and the judges are refusing, so if it continues to grow, this could put much more pressure on the egyptian president and we're looking at tahrir square and reminded when the crowds were protesti protesting hosni mubarak, who are they and how united are they? >> certainly a lot of similarities both with the scenes and even some of the chants shall
hours before in cairo. what we think, then, transpired in benghazi is the extremist elements came to the consulate, as this was unfolding. >> notice the phrase "extremist elements." we since learned that ambassador rice was speaking to talking points, regarding jihadist groups, including a local al-qaeda affiliate. the intelligence community was said to have made the edit. michael morrell told senators the fbi was responsible. then later, cia officials contacted the senators and said the acting director misspoke, and it was actually the cia that changed the talking points. as we said last night, it is a bit of a mess and a real headache for president obama who defended susan rice today but did not mention libya. >> all right, guys, thank you. we want to get back to work. >> mr. president, can you care to -- >> thank you so much, guys. >> can you tell us about that? >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job that she has done. >> here to talk about it, the former cia officer, he is a senior fellow at the defense of democracies, also joining us, national security
three to six months. i met, it last week in cairo and talked about showing it to the hamas officials. he showed it to some hamas officials sitting in cairo and they told him to go back to gaza and joy to the military and political officials back in gaza. he did that on wednesday morning, was showing it around to jabari and other people. i was supposed to receive from him that evening a copy of the draft he had written in arabic for me to deliver to the israeli side and egyptian intelligence, which i was unable to do in the end. >> because he was assassinated. >> that's right. >> i want to read from ha'aretz about the israeli assassination of the hamas military commander jabari. the article is titled "israel killed its subcontractor in gaza." begins "jabari was a sub your response to that article and placing ahmed jabari in the context of the security situation in gaza over the past few years? >> i don't want to be misinterpreted, ahmed jabari was not a man at peace. he was not an angel in any way. he was a warrior, a fighter, the person responsible for the hamas coup d'etat conducted in
